About this song: (lyrics below)
This is a song about love and perspective. I wrote it as my 2nd marriage was disintegrating. While I was in a lot of pain at the time, this song has continued to soothe and nourish me. I hope it does the same for you. I put this out on my “Eyes On The Horizon” CD as well as more recently on my “Spark And Flame” CD. This version is from Eyes On The Horizon.
When You Walk Through Roses
Song # 337 | 2/9/2004 | Eyes on The Horizon CD, Spark & Flame CD
When you walk through roses
Do you feel the thorns
Or do you see the blossoms
In spite of what you’ve torn?
Can you catch a glimpse of heaven
In a drop of dew?
Or your reflection
In the people around you?
We get what we focus on
So focus in on what you want
Focus in on me, focusing my love on you…
If you cried a river
Would it feel much better
Than if you laughed the ocean
And then chose to dive right in?
When you hear a jazz band
Do you hear the bass or the horns?
And if somebody asked you
Could you tell them why you were born?
If I wrapped my arms around you
Would you feel constrained
Or would you feel connected
And choose freely to remain?
If I then released you
And then danced away
Would you chose to feel abandoned
Or would you see it as a chance to play?
